Hey honeys on this week's podcast we sit down and talk about the scary side of retirement 
We understand the importance of avoiding common money mistakes to secure a stable financial future. In this episode, we delve into key pitfalls that women over 40 should steer clear of.
Firstly, neglecting retirement planning is a major mistake. It's crucial to start early, maximise contributions, and take advantage of tax breaks and diversification within retirement savings. Understanding compound interest and the benefits of starting early can significantly impact your financial future.
Healthcare costs tend to rise as we age, so it's essential to plan for these expenses. Whether it's health insurance, health savings accounts, or regular check-ups, investing in your health now can prevent financial strain later on.
Estate planning is another critical aspect to consider. Having a will, setting up a testamentary trust, and ensuring designated beneficiaries for your accounts can help avoid legal complications and ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
Knowing your financial goals for retirement is key. Whether it's travelling, downsizing, or owning your home, having a clear plan can guide your financial decisions and prepare you for unexpected life events like the death of a spouse or divorce.
Owning your home is emphasised as a crucial step towards financial security in retirement. Stories of individuals facing homelessness or financial instability due to lack of home ownership highlight the importance of this asset.
Managing debt is also essential. Prioritising debt repayment and having an action plan in place can help ensure a debt-free retirement.
By focusing on these points we can take proactive steps towards securing their financial future. Remember, it's never too late to start, but the earlier you begin, the better off you'll be.
